The Age of Shadows

The Age of Shadows
  • 2016
  • South Korea
  • 140 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Written by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Cast: Byung-hun Lee, Yoo Gong, Kang-ho Song

Lee Jung-Chool (Song Kang-ho) is a Korean police officer serving as part of a Japanese mission to locate a consignment of explosives in 1920s Shanghai. A little research into the political tensions of the era is advisable, but it has a steely verve and baroque style that makes for compelling viewing.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tom McGrath
  • Written by: Marla Frazee/Michael McCullers
  • Cast: Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi

The Boss Baby (Baldwin) is a tot with the mannerisms of a ruthless corporate tycoon, who upsets seven-year-old Tim (Bakshi). The frantic visual style and crude slapstick overwrite the charm of the original story by Marla Frazee, and there’s not much for audiences to take to their hearts.

Elle

Elle
  • 2016
  • France, Germany, Belgium
  • 130 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Paul Verhoeven
  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Christian Berkel, Anne Consigny

Michele (Huppert) is a successful, middle-aged video games producer who, when raped by a violent intruder, doesn't report the assault but behaves as though nothing has happened. Verhoeven's dark character drama features an astonishing, multi-layered central performance from Huppert and its treatment of sexual violence is challenging and audacious.

Free Fire

Free Fire
  • 2016
  • France, UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ben Wheatley
  • Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer

Boston, 1978: Chris (Murphy) is an IRA member looking to buy guns from Vern (Copley), with the help of go-betweens Justine (Larson) and Ord (Hammer): it soon descends into violence. Copley is very funny and there's some terrific dialogue, but Wheatley's latest sees him fumble the ball, with a threadbare plot that's merely an excuse for a movie-length shoot-out.

Get Out

Get Out
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Written by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford

Chris (Kaluuya) heads to upstate New York with his girlfriend Rose (Williams), for a dinner with her supposedly liberal parents (Whitford and Keener), only to find that things are very much other than they seem. Peele’s deep understanding of horror movies tropes combines with his own experiences as a black American, to make a sharp, taut and precisely crafted reflection on racial tensions in America.

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell
  • 1995
  • Japan
  • 85 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mamoru Oshii
  • Cast: Atsuko Tanaka, Akio Ōtsuka, Iemasa Kayumi

It's 2029, and secret service cyborgs are battling with a megalomaniacal super-hacker. The philosophical tracts and techno jargon are a bit of a problem, but the visuals are undeniably impressive. The most expensive feature-length adaptation of a 'manga' comic ever, it's worth catching on the big screen.

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell
  • 2017
  • US
  • 107 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rupert Sanders
  • Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Michael Pitt, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche

Major (Johansson) is a human brain harvested from a body that cannot be saved, and placed in a cyborg shell to be an asset to elite crime busters Section 9. Barnstorming action, incredible production design, a nicely diverse cast with Johansson spectacularly measuring up to the role’s physical and emotional demands, and a killer geisha robot: what’s not to like?

Life

Life
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 103 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
  • Written by: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick
  • Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds

A Mars mission docks with the ISS bearing a single-celled alien organism, which then bursts out of containment. Derivative sci-fi drama which feels like a blend / rip-off of Alien and Gravity; you spend most of it wondering who’ll die next. Reasonably effective but inessential.

Logan
  • 2017
  • US
  • 137 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant

Grey-haired, boozy and ailing, Logan (Jackman) is caring for the now elderly Charles Xavier (Stewart) when he encounters a young mutant girl, Laura (Keen). A glorious swansong for Wolverine; the world-weary tone, low-key setting and ballsy climax really impress. First class.

  • Directed by: John Mackenzie

An English gangster is about to close a lucrative deal when bombs start showing up in his Rolls Royce and a pub he owns. He can't understand why and when he tried to find out, mayhem erupts.

The Lost City of Z

The Lost City of Z
  • 2016
  • US
  • 141 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson

The true story of the Amazonian expeditions of British army officer Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), which inspired Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Despite good work from Hunnam, Miller as Percy’s plucky wife and Pattinson as his loyal sidekick, it’s a languorous and sometimes confusing story which sometimes becomes The Lost City of Zzzzz.

  • US
  • 111 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris

The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and Monáe. Terrific.

Personal Shopper

Personal Shopper
  • 2016
  • France
  • 105 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Olivier Assayas
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Nora von Waldstätten

Maureen (Stewart) is an American in Paris, coming to terms with the death of her twin brother while working in the titular position for her demanding celebrity boss (von Waldstätten). An awkward fusion of ghost story, celebrity culture satire and de Palma-style thriller; Stewart's nervy, edgy performance almost but not quite keeps it on track. Intriguing but incoherent.

The Salesman

The Salesman (Forushande)
  • 2016
  • Iran
  • 125 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Asghar Farhadi
  • Cast: Taraneh Alidoosti, Shahab Hosseini, Babak Karimi

Rana (Alidoosti) and Emad (Hosseini) are forced to abandon their home, but when they stay in another flat, pressure grows on their relationship. Farhadi weaves themes of professional failure and paranoia into a compelling drama about lives at the mercy of malicious forces.

Smurfs: The Lost Village

Smurfs: The Lost Village
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kelly Asbury
  • Written by: Stacey Harman/Pamela Ribon
  • Cast: Demi Lovato, Ariel Winter, Julia Roberts, Joe Manganiello

Smurfette (Lovato) and her friends go on a quest to help her find her place in the village, and the result is a series of chases, a few under-cooked girl-power nods and a lot of sappiness. Undemanding kids might have a good time; adults will have to grin and smurf it.

Taxi Driver
  • 1976
  • US
  • 114 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Written by: Paul Schrader
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Albert Brooks, Harvey Keitel, Leonard Harris, Peter Boyle, Cybill Shepherd

The now classic story of an alienated taxi driver in New York who is so repelled by the squalor and the moral decay around him that he is driven to terrible violence. One of the key American films of the 1970s with the Scorsese-De Niro partnership at its peak.

The Time Of Their Lives

The Time Of Their Lives
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 104 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Goldby
  • Written by: Roger Goldby
  • Cast: Joan Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero

Priscilla (P. Collins) is a neglected housewife who finds herself on coach trip to France with some dotty pensioners, including forgotten film star Helen (J. Collins). The Collinses make an engaging double act and it works best when it goes a little off the rails, but this amiable comedy occasionally feel unfinished.

The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard Of Oz
  • 1939
  • US
  • 102 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Victor Fleming/Norman Taurog/Richard Thorpe
  • Cast: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger

Miserable Dorothy runs away from home but is soon whisked up into a magical land where her adventures teach her that happiness is to be found in her own back yard. Classic stuff indeed, just chockful of great songs, characterisation and memorably garish design. Perhaps marginally less enjoyable for the curmudgeonly element rooting for the Wicked Witch of the West, though.
